day to vote in the presidential race there. chavez has denounced the united states as "the biggest menace to our planet." he once called former president george w. bush "a donkey, a coward and an immoral person." anchor jorge ramos from our partner network univision is in venezuela tonight for the election, and i spoke with jorge just moments ago here. jorge, great to have you with us again tonight and president chavez finding himself in his closest race yet to hold on to power. >> reporter: absolutely. for the first time in 13 years president hugo chavez might lose the presidency. he hasn't been able to control inflation, crime, corruption, and for the first time all the opposition parties got together behind one candidate, henrique capriles, a formidable 40-year-old former governor. >> we al know that president chavez almost made it political sport to become friends with our own rivals in america but he also controls a significant amount of oil that comes to the united states. >> reporter: there is a lot at stake for the united states here in venezuela. on a personal level, we ha
think that i am running for the united states senate because it is my job to make sure that future generations that are coming up behind me have the same opportunities my family had. >> senator heller. >> i want to thank pbs, sponsors, and my opponent for being here this evening. i grew up with five brothers and sisters, and i raised four children of my own. i learned that an early stage it is more important to listen than it is to talk. that is what i have done. there are concerns about staying in their homes and keeping their jobs. senior citizens are worried about health care and about if the doctor is even going to accept medicare and the future. they are worried about this fiscal cliff. there are real issues with real people. i believe i will supply those real solutions. the result may be different, but i want to change the dialogue of this particular debate, a challenge for myself and my opponent for us to discuss these issues. we treat voters like adults. if we can do that, i think we will increase the dialogue here, and i think that is what nevada deserves. >> you have the
ago you told the "desert sun" that it was in our best interest that the united states remain in both iraq and afghanistan. last months you told the veterans that if president obama couldn't outline a clear and concise explanation of why troops remain in afghanistan, then the u.s. should "get the hell out." what prompted such a change in perspective, and if the u.s. pulled out immediately, how do you address concern that the enemy will fill the void? >> let me go back to a little bit more thorough reporting than that. and the article is there. but what i did say is as long as president obama cannot articulate to the american people why we are there and what we are doing, but allowing our troops to flounder because he feels comfortable because he has given a timeline for withdrawal, that troubles me greatly. under this presidential leadership, yes, i am concerned about our troops being deployed in afghanistan, absolutely. but you know what else troubles me about this timeline of president obama's, which is an arbitrary political timeline? he didn't get that from the generals, he got it
as president of the united states. [applause] crowd: four more years! >> you know, over the last four years, i have seen a lot of folks hurt. i have seen a lot of struggle. and i am not going to make -- i am not going to have us go back to another round of top-down economics. but that is what my opponent is offering. the centerpiece of governor plan, favorsomic the wealthiest americans. he has been pitching the plan an entire year. he stood up on stage in a primary debate and proudly declared his tax cuts would include the top 1%. most of the economists that crunched the numbers said paying for the tax plan either means blowing up the deficit or raising taxes on middle-class families. one or the other. pick your poison. last week, mitt romney said, there is no addition to the deficit with my tax plan. if he says it is not true, then it is not true. ok. it is true that it is not going to add to the deficit, that leaves only one option. that is asking middle-class families to foot the bill by getting rid of the deductions for owning a home, raising kids, or sending them to college. as it turned
paul ryan and i will become the next president and vice president of the united states. [applause] we take america to two very different places and that is clear by virtue of what you have heard over the last two debates and you will hear over the last one as well. the president will put an america in place that has about $20 trillion in debt, killing the american dream for your kids. if i become president, i will take the action to make sure we kept our federal spending, we limit federal spending as a percentage of our total economy, and we finally get america on track to a balanced budget. [applause] if president obama were reelected, is spending plan and is borrowing and the death of that borrowing will cost -- cause not only high income people pyrotechnical small but, you will see middle income people in this country facing $4,000 more in taxes. when i become president of the united states, i will lower taxes for the middle-class and on small businesses who need a real break. [applause] he made it clear as well in the last couple debates that he is reelected, we will have obama ca
, russia and consider rush-hour number one enemy." #3, it angers and alienates the united states. and increasingly irritates turkey. why is russia doing this? there is continued disunity in the ranks of the rebels, although after this morning, there's another chance they say to reunify. hopefully, scout, think they won't be able to oust assad. turkey has not been willing to extend their anti-syrian rhetoric. however, the turkish prime minister is quite had strong. if he continues to be provoked by syrian shelling, he may take action. this is why in recent days, following the shelling, forcing down a jet flying to damascus, russia is trying to ply the situation and by increasing the supply of natural gas to turkey, making up for a short fly to iran to maintain good relations between russia and turkey despite what is happening in syria. in conclusion, moscow is taking a major middle east gamble with its policy in syria. if the gamble fails, and i think it will, hopefully if the u.s. get a little more active in the process, moscow's middle east policy will be in deep trouble. thank
, standing up in iran, with the backing of united states. that could have been counterproductive. as a result, the obama administration was pretty silent. at the time now where romney is going after him on that, i think there were a few areas where there were some significant differences, but on the whole, after you get through some of the angry rhetoric, there is a lot of agreement between obama and romney, one area of disagreement on arming the syrian rebels. another area of disagreement, how far will iran be able to go in its nuclear weapons capability, the capability of developing a bomb as opposed to actually having a bomb. and the third was on russia. he twice in a speech singled out vladimir putin as a basically a foe of the united states and he was doubling down on those controversial remarks. he made a few months ago, that russia was america's number one geostrategic foe. >> interesting on syria, i was listening to fareed zakaria, he noted the passive voice. we're wall for it as you mentioned, the foreign policy debate in two weeks. wolf blitzer, we'll talk next hour. i have more que

. it was a dangerous showdown that gripped the united states 50 years ago. it was october 28, 1962 when the cuban missile crisis threatened to turn the cold war into a hot one. the bbc has gained exclusive access to new information that shows there was the second stage to the crisis. >> the cuban missile crisis did not end on october 28, 1962. cuba was going to become a nuclear power right under the nose of the united states, 90 miles from florida. >> there was a lot of attention for at least another three weeks and until that moment, we were at the highest state of alert short of nuclear war. >> i call upon chairman khrushchev. he has the opportunity to world the world back from the abyss of destruction. >> people around the world. the sigh of relief in october 1962 when soviet president nikita khrushchev agreed to remove nuclear weapons from cuba. but in a total failure of intelligence, the u.s. was blind to the existence of tactical nuclear weapons. meanwhile, negotiations -- castro began to see some cooperation with the soviets. >> castro is very angry at the soviet the trail. it sounds like
the leaders of iran on notice that the united states and our friends and allies will prevent them from acquiring nuclear weapons capability. i'll not hesitate to impose new sanctions on iran and will tighten the sanctions we currently have. i'll restore the permanent presence of air cast carrier task forces in the eastern mediterranean and the gulf. i'll work with israel to increase our military assistance and coordination for the sake of peace we must make clear to iran through actions, not just words, that their nuclear pursuit will not be tolerated. >> despite his criticism that president obama has not slowed iran's nuclear ambition, mr. romney's plan isn't a lot different from that of the presidents. you can see here. the current administration has increased sanctions along with the western rorld and vowed to prevent iran from getting atomic weapons. there are also a few differences between the candidates when it comes to cooperation with israel. and the drawdown of u.s. forces from afghanistan. on the middle east peace process, romney sounded decidedly more optimistic than he did

with historians, trying to figure out when the campaign for president of the united states -- will effectively shut down while folks are voting and a week before: open nationally. it is a remarkable turn of events, and i do not think anyone knows what the outcome will be. tavis: i am a sports guy, so in any particular game, if there is something that causes a stoppage in the play, some rained out games, it always depends whether they were making a comeback. it does have an impact if they have to stop for the weather. might this be the situation politically, that one side will be harmed if they have this stoppage? >> i think that is the best comparison. in football or baseball you want to keep doing the same thing, and the analogy for politics, you do not want anything to interrupt that. i am trying to get beyond campaign status. 9-11 was early, but there were a couple that were at fault. 9-11 with the races at a standstill. i am not comparing the tragedy of 9-11 with the impending smith storm -- with the impending storm, but it will certainly carry on tomorrow. we are talking about three days
associates. we have enormous potential in the united states to develop our energy resources. it seems a lot of it is a communications challenge. when you have a lease it does not mean you will find oil. var, we talk about it having big reserves. it takes a long while. how do we communicate that to the average citizen? that will be the key to have a sound energy policy that can benefit all americans. >> the chamber is very active in politics, but we don't do presidential policy. i will refer to something that candidate romney said the other day about energy. he said you spend all your time in energy beating up on the existing energy system, which does a of a job. about $2 trillion worth of deductions, while putting $92 billio -- putting $90 billion into something else. the fundamental thing is we know we have a lot of energy. we do it right -- and the country owns 68% of the lands -- we do it right, hire people and they will pay taxes and the companies will pay taxes and pay royalties. it will take time, but we are talking about a 10-year deal on spending and taxes and it ought to be on ener

, and competitiveness. how do you create within the united states the most competitive environment in the world. i think that alludes to this idea that companies, world wide american companies, are in a position to pursue 95% of the world consumers who are outside the united states. there is a recognition that the u.s. tax code should be moving to put them on a platform to do that, to compete effectively. an area of common ground is in recognition of that. number one, you need more revenue. if the democrats are open to how that revenue comes about, great. my view has always been, look, if you can get the money that satisfies these obligations, that is the area of common ground. let's move forward on that. and it is not just party dogma. this level of dissatisfaction, this notion that we have literally an army of people in the united states that have to be hired in order to comply with our own tax code, we have 1.2 million people who are on the compliance aside. we have 1.4 people roughly that who are unemployed -- who are unemployed currently. the need for simplicity is the common ground on which we mus
